Literacy

Today we are continuing with our focus story 'The Enormous Turnip'.  

First, using the word cards below or writing the words on paper at home if you are unable to print, hide them around your house or your garden. As you find them, blend the sounds together to read each word.

Can you draw a picture to match each word you read on the worksheet? Use the sound buttons underneath each word to help you. 

I would love to see a video of you word hunting and to see your drawings on Tapestry.  Have fun!

Word hunt!
